Strings

stringing machines

We are happy to restring your racquet! We specialize in custom stringing to match your unique playing style. The benefits of taking advantage of our Babolat Star 4 and Star 5 electronic stringing machines are that they are more consistent with regards to the integrity of the string job and will also produce more accurate results. This is due to their advanced technology that allows the strings to be under the constant pull of tension, which a hand crank machine cannot offer.
